Joint Platform

One region moving forward together.

The Bay Adapt Joint Platform is a consensus-based strategy comprised of 9 actions and 21 tasks that will protect people and the natural and built environment from rising sea levels. Rather than specifying individual projects, the Bay Adapt Joint Platform lays out regional strategies that focus on overcoming barriers and identifying factors for successful adaptation outcomes we want throughout the region. This platform, and the ideas in it, belong to everyone, and seek to serve everyone, now and into the future.
